Nice quick fab work. I was almost thinking alum spacer on the stock mount.

Don't drop something on those toes!

Got you covered Mike, I'm already looking at private school options for Sophie when she hits middle school for the same reasons. Good luck sir!

The Lutheran School that Madison attended was outstanding; best of luck!

In Vegas for a IT conference. Had to get my In-N-Out fix double double.

Mad house but not hot so that is good. 9 hours on conference room.

Yep. Glad I'm not the one that has to use it. Wouldn't be pretty. I just go to these so I know what is possible so my BS meter is better when talking to my Network Engineers.

So I put the pads in the caliper bolted it to the disc conversion bracket from GLO and rested it on there to get an idea.



You can see although it’s not straight the gap is significant to where the disc conversion bracket would normally bolt to.


When the disc conversion bracket (DCB) was straight this is the distance between factory mount on axle tube and the DCB.



I then began making a bracket.... by calling my local steel supply and having them brake me som 6”x6” 3/8” thick plate. Then they took it to a machine shop and had the center hole of 3” waterjetted into it... the tube diameter is actually something like 3.02 so I had to open it up a bit more.

Freshly picked up.



Opened up a bit with an end mill but on my drill press.



And they fit!



Drilled some bolt holes and welded them in place.



I trimmed up both sides, cleaned everything up with a wire wheel and painted them. Here they are primed.



Then I installed it all.

Now onto the rear disc conversion. For starters if you own a Dana 70, prepare for more than a bolt on situation. Spacers or bracket relocation is needed.

Thanks again to Shawn for making a great product.

You can see the bracket hanging, it is painted the same as the diff cover.



To start you need to remove the eight bolts that hold the axle shaft in, slide it out, and then remove the spindle nut. Some have two nuts and a locking type washer, this one had a single nylon locking spindle nut.



Your outer hub bearing should come out without issue.



Then slide the hub and drum off and drive out the lug studs. Because you’ll be reusing your hub.



Hub lifts right off.



There are four bolts holding the brake pad mount on, remove those and your bracket slides off and can be discarded to your scrap pile.



At this point things started to get really interesting for me. The PO of the donor truck which my driveline came off of swapped in larger lug studs. I wanted uniformity so I wanted to go back to the size that came on the truck. But it wasn’t as simple as buying factory lugs because the lug stud holes in the hubs had been opened up.

So I needed to find a stud with a big enough and long enough shoulder to keep the rotor on the hub.

It took a few tries to find the right one, but eventually I did. Here is a comparison of what was in the drums to what needed to be installed in my rotors.



Then the real fun began, trying to install the studs into the rotors and hubs, the k2500 stud holes were too small.
 
I ruined two rotors even after changing studs. Then finally listens to people wiser than I and bored out the stud holes so the studs ONLY made contact with the hub.



So now you have your hub and rotors joined.

I then had my rotors faced to put a good surface on them.



I also replaced my out bearings because the races had a gash in them.



Now your at the point of bolting on your bracket and re installing your newly mated rotor and hub.... or so you think

This is where everything sits when bolted on, on a Dana 70. Obviously it won’t work.



So I reached out to Shawn for some schooling! After learning occurred I began measuring and found I would need spacers of about 1.75”. So I pondered, and asked about relocating the bracket.... I chose to relocate the bracket.

Thx guys, unfortunately it will be a few weeks before I get back up. That's ok as I have plenty to do here.

Hey guys, my better half was admitted to her hospital yesterday. We had a long 24 hours day before with two er visits and then finally admitting her yesterday afternoon. She has a 4mm kidney stone that is causing some issues as she tries to pass it. As of 1pm mst today she will be going under general anesthetic and having it removed according to her urologist. That is unless she successfully passes it first. If you could keep in your prayers it would be appreciated. I’ve been told it is every bit as painful as child birth and from her anger and doubling over in pain I am not doubting it in the least. Thanks

you know my back story on these. Hang in there, that's a passable size for most, but yeah, big time pain.

i'll eventually learn to read ahead before posting. Good to hear Shawn. amazing how much relief that brings.
